Combining the drama of The God of Animals with the powerful realism of Chosen by a Horse, award-winning poet Jana Harris tells the inspiring story of her twenty-four-year relationship with a troubled but beautiful, blood-red feral mare who, in spite of her difficult past, has a talent for healing and helping every human and other being she comes into contact with.
When True Colors arrived at Harris' farm, she was in dire shape. She had survived a range fire that had scarred her head, ears, and lungs, and she was terrified of most people, especially men. True Colors sensed demons hiding in everything from the scent of fabric softener to a gate in a fence, and her will to escape was enormous. In Horses Never Lie About Love, Harris lyrically recounts how this wounded, implacable beast nevertheless held a magical influence over the other horses of the ranch and how she eased uncannily into the role of mother after having a foal. In time she became the heart of the ranch - now thirty-three years old, she is a matriarchal presence without whom the other horses cannot sleep at night, and whose quiet wisdom transmits strength of character that transcends the thin line between animals and the humans they love.

Started off promising
Enjoyed the beginning and the premise of the story, however it began to languish with too many mishaps and elaborate equine veterinary details....
